Trivia and History

The A66 west of here runs along the historic Roman Road, Watling Street. The approach to Scotch Corner was changed with two new bends added. The eastern bend turned out to be too sharp for a main road, and it was replaced by a smoother curve in the 1950s. From this point the old bend became Sedbury lay-by.

Catering facilities and toilets are provided in a combined building in the centre of the lay-by. Until recently, overnight parking was banned here.
